Sex determination in the loggerhead turtle, Caretta caretta, is controlled by incubation temperature during a critical period of embryogenesis. As heat-shock gene expression is temperature-dependent and has been shown to be associated with early developmental regulation in several organisms, we studied the constitutive expression of hsp70 and hsp90 in embryonic brain and urinogenital tissues to see if these proteins are differentially expressed during the sex-determining period in embryos… CONTINUE READING
